We empower New York City's underserved youth to explore careers through career development and paid, mentored internships. We reach out to teens at a formative time of their lives, guiding them to further their education and become contributing citizens.
Career Essentials is offered to middle and high school students who are interested in learning more about the work world. This career readiness program provides highly interactive group workshops with opportunities for students to practice and improve their interpersonal, communication, presentation, leadership and teamwork skills. The program also includes career exploration activities and field trips. Career exploration trips have included visits to New York City companies such as PwC, Colgate-Palmolive Company and Gap.
We are no longer accepting applications for the 2017 Spring Career Essentials program. The application will open in September for our Fall program.
